Koni Shocks

I know there has been discussion regarding shocks for our coaches on this forum. I am planning on replacing my shocks and would be interested to know what shock is recommened for my 99 36' mid door Alpine. Can anyone tell me which shock to use?

The chassis is the same on all the Alpines so go ahead and get the Koni's that you read about. I put them on my '98 and they work great. Sorry that you missed the special deal that was arranged at the end of last year.

The model you want is the FSD (Frequency Selective Damping?). I put them on mine (same as yours) and am well pleased.
Just make sure to tighten all mounts and lower brackets well or you'll experience some bumps/rattles/thumps when driving. The brackets must be tight against the metal inserts of the shock bushings. Very tight is good.

You'll want a pair of 1021's and a pair of 1022's (Koni). www.shox.com still had good pricing. You might even call them to get a better discount. It's a small outfit and two guys take all the orders.
